Life turned me into some sort of mad dog.
13 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Paul Naschy is Bruno, who double crosses his girlfriend Mieko (Eiko Nagashima) and an Asian gang to steal some diamonds. They are hot on his trail while he holes up with a kind doctor (Lautaro Murúa).

Of course, the doctor has two beautiful daughters (Silvia Aguilar & Azucena Hernández) and a hot maid (Roxana Dupre). It remains to be seen who ends up with Bruno.

Meanwhile, there are some very strange and gruesome things going on in the house. including an apparition (Julia Saly).

But, the real goings on don't come until the end. One suspects something, but you are not sure until the end.

A good Naschy film.
